GIG: The Gaslight Anthem

The rawkus melding of Bruce Springsteen’s NJ storytelling and E Street charm with an energetic punk aesthetic, The Gaslight Anthem hit London ahead of the release of their fourth long player, Handwritten, and a string of summer festival shows, to show why rock ‘n’ roll was born in
the USA. Fist-pumping, sing-along stuff.

CLUB: White Heat

Forget Thursday being the new Friday, or Sundays being the new Saturdays, it’s all about Tuesday nights here at this trash-tastic Soho haunt. If you’ve got the stamina to last the week, get down and enjoy the electro-techno-indie-alt classics on the turntables, courtesy of DJs Matty and Marcus at this ice-cool knockout.

CLUB: Heroes   

This monthly night looks to challenge the accepted norms of clubbing, combining music with performance to make one hell of a party. Reset Robot, Nick Tcherniak, Warboy, Inigo Surio and Jay Tempest headline the first room with the house, techno and dubstep battling on through till 10am.

GIG: 2:54

Two girls, two guitars and a load of distortion- and reverb-laden chords straight out of a Fender Strat circa 1993, draped in a flannel shirt somewhere near Seattle. These grunge-influenced gals add melody to the tunes to sidestep those ‘Nineties revival’ catcalls, mining a territory between Tegan And Sara and Warpaint.

CLUB: Red Bull Takeover at Found: Daedelus  

The LA-bred experimental hip-hop fella also known as Daedelus – and his backdrop of disconcerting reflecting mirror visuals – drops into south London’s Hidden for this night of envelope-pushing electronica. Dorian Concept, Cooly G and Braiden provide the support for what should be a banging evening

GIG: Blink 182

Beginning as as bunch of cock-joke and sex-obsessed smut merchants, Blink 182 made
a career out of scatalogical puerility.  They then reinvented themselves with emo honesty and promptly disbanded. They’re back now, though, with new album Neighborhoods, to show why pop-punk ruled the Noughties.
